Meal Plan Monday

Hey everybody! Did you have a nice weekend? We got a whole bunch of stuff done. What do you think of the blog changes? I have wanted to update my blog for a while and finally got around to it. There are still a few things left to do so if it looks wonky around here that's why.

I also finished the library - finally! It turned out even better than I expected! If you missed the post you can check it out here

Here is my Meal Plan for the week of
January 16 thru January 22:

Monday - Lasagna Soup, Wheat Rolls

Tuesday - Asian Ginger Sesame Chicken w/Rice

Wednesday - Chicken Tortellini Soup

Thursday - Beef & Broccoli Lo Mein

Friday - Eat Out

Saturday - Lasagna, Salad

Sunday - Breakfast For Dinner

Chicken Tortellini Soup

This soup is quick and easy to make and tastes delicious! Even my kids like it and they are really picky eaters!

* 4 carrots, cut into bite-size pieces
* 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
* 8 oz cheese tortellini (fresh or frozen)
* 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
* salt & pepper
* 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
* 1/2 tsp. ground rosemary - optional

In a large saucepan, simmer the carrots in the broth until tender, 10-12 minutes.

Add the tortellini and simmer until tender, 2-4 minutes.

Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 1-2 minutes more. Season with salt, pepper and rosemary (if desired) then sprinkle with parsley.
